See priceless artworks as part of the Abu Dhabi Festival 2019

Fancy a gander at some priceless art? Well there’s a festival for that and it promises to transport you thousands of miles away.

Abu Dhabi Festival 2019 will be presenting a diverse visual arts programme throughout February and March, headlined by an exhibition presenting the history of European landscape from the world-famous Liechtenstein. The Princely Collections.

It’s the first time the exhibition, titled Distant Prospects | European Landscape Paintings from LIECHTENSTEIN, has been seen in the Middle East.

It will be on show at Manarat al Saadiyat from Tuesday February 26 until Monday March 25.

The show features works by key figures in the Late Renaissance and Baroque artist movements including Peter Paul Rubens, Joos de Momper and Lucas Cranach The Elder, among many others.

Fancy dipping your paintbrush yourself? Parallel to the exhibition, this year’s Abu Dhabi Festival Visual Arts Programme will also include an educational programme to inspire aspiring and emerging artists.

It will include a series of interactive talks and panel discussions, guided exhibition tours and practical creative workshops inspired by the works on display.

Tue Feb 26-Mon March 25. Manarat al Saadiyat, Saadiyat Island, www.abudhabifestival.ae
